Last.Fm to Launch FM Radio Stations in Several Major U.S. Cities

Paul Lilly

Last.fm has officially left the confines of your computer and handheld gadgets and has hitched a ride in car radios. This doesn't come as a surprise, since parent company CBS announced last month that it planned on launching a new radio station called "Last.fm Discovers."

Powered entirely by the Last.fm weekly charts, Last.fm Discovers kicks off in four major U.S. cities, including New York, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Chicago.

CBS said programming would include "Last.fm Recommends with Bryan VanGelder", which is a program that plays a popular song on Last.fm followed by two related and recommended songs, "Last.fm Discovers with Sat Bisla", which focuses on weekly charts, and "Shouts", in which comments left on Last.fm about specific songs will be read aloud followed by playing the song the comment is about.
